6 Minecraft lessons offer a motherlode of learning | Robotics and GBL Biosphere | Scoop.it
News that Microsoft is buying MinecraftEdu and beefing up the classroom version of the insanely popular game got us thinking about all the great ways educators use Minecraft to teach everything from math and social studies to team building and cell biology.

"As an educational tool, Minecraft is a wonderful platform for learning," says Pam Simon who runs an after-school program called Fidgets2Widgets that has incorporated Minecraft since 2013. "You have to have mathematical understanding to build sound structures. Architecture and design features allow for innovation. Redstone in the game acts as the electrical circuitry system, so you can run minecarts, light torches, and create pressure plates."

Get ‘Em Started! Use These Resources to Teach Coding to Kids | Make: | Robotics and GBL Biosphere | Scoop.it
Teaching kids to code offers a lot of challenges that you don’t run into when instructing adults. Kids don’t have a ton of real world experience, so a lot of analogies fly over their heads. Abstract thinking can take a lot more effort, so you need to keep things more concrete. Many kids have extremely short attention spans, especially in groups. And if there isn’t a cool payoff almost immediately, they are going to get bored and zone out. All the lecturing in the world won’t get the lesson into their heads at that point.

When teaching children programming, the goal is to empower them to understand the everyday systems they already use, and to know they have the skill to pick this kind of stuff up, both now and later in life. Not everyone wants to do software development for a living, no matter how smart of a career choice it is, but programming is creeping more and more into other fields every day.

Best coding toys and programming games for kids

Best coding toys and programming games for kids | Robotics and GBL Biosphere | Scoop.it

Parents might have heard of STEM, which stands for four specific disciplines: science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in those subjects in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning programme based on real-world applications.

While parents are used to spending money on books, toys and gadgets that help their offspring learn to count and read, getting kids hooked on coding or other STEM subjects will look daunting to say the least.

For the purposes of this feature we are describing some products as “toys” or “games” when they are or can be actually a whole lot more. We’ve described them this way because we’re looking at products that kids will want to play and interact with.

If they think that the Educational Thing is a toy they are more likely to play with it, rather than just do it. Learning through play is one of the best ways of picking up new skills, and overcoming what can at first appear rather daunting educational challenges.
